In a recent interview, Jeremy Geffen was asked about his entertainment industry outlook for the rest of 2014 and was effusive in his praise for the multi-talented recording star Jacob Latimore.
"With a combination of outstanding musical talent, movie-star good looks and acting skills that have been lauded by critics nationwide, Jacob Latimore is the complete package," says Geffen. "With a new single scheduled to drop this summer on RCA Records and a new film in September, Latimore is poised to conquer Hollywood before he turns 18 this August."
